Best Sports in the United States

21 Cross-Country

Cross country is by far the best sport in the world behind hockey and wrestling. I love so much and I'm always going to run it, today (6-14-13) I'm 12 years old and my fastest mile is eight minutes and thirty two seconds.

Cross-country is great. I'm not an extremely athletic person, but running is my passion. Go X-country!

Cross country is both a team sport and an individual sport. You are running the same event with your teammates, yet you are trying to compete against yourself. It takes a lot of willpower to run, so it will strengthen you for other life situations.

The only sport I did in High School for four years and I would do it again.

22 Dodgeball

I saw the comments of horse racing fans saying football sucks. GTFO horse racing might be fun, but it is a hell of a lot more boring to watch. I can see you idiots now, Oh look that horse is going around in a circle faster than that other one. Some people are actually dumb enough to bet on which horse is going to win, this is america people, not europe. So why dodgeball? Anyone can play it. Throwing a ball at someone else takes aim, and timing, and it is a lot more exciting than most others, because even if your out your still screaming at your team to catch a ball so you can be back in. What sport could possibly be more fun than pegging other people with balls.

Underrated sport it involves great skills of reflex. The NDL should be much bigger

Who hates dodgeball. To me it's my favorite sport. It should go global. And if you're reading and say it's bad you're super wrong.

Its more a fun game to play than a serious sport, but it's a lot of fun to play with friends and such

23 Ice Hockey Ice Hockey Ice hockey is a contact team sport played on ice, usually in a rink, in which two teams of skaters use their sticks to shoot a vulcanized rubber puck into their opponent's net to score points.
24 Mixed Martial Arts Mixed Martial Arts Mixed martial arts is a full-contact combat sport that allows the use of both striking and grappling techniques, both standing and on the ground, from a variety of other combat sports and martial arts.

There is no other sport that asks more from a athlete physically and mentally MMA is the only sport than is man vs man (or women vs women) you win it's not because you had a better team its because your a better martial artist you lose it is on you not because your WR dropped the ball or the kicker missed the winning field goal by far MMA best sport ever and still growing

I've played football, basketball, and soccer, and by far mma is the hardest, most technical and exciting sport I've ever watched or participated in. It should be number one in my opinion

MMA is fresh new and very entertaining rather than basketball, football, or baseball MMA is a combative sport which is as real as it gets rather than simple boxing or wrestling

MMA should be higher

25 Diving

Very hard to do a dive and do everything perfect.

26 Horse Racing

Let's make a quick comparison:
The Kentucky Derby rocks, and not only is the the two most watched minutes into sports, but it is a sport where trust and balance rein supreme. The superbowl is plain stupid, and its way too overrateed. In other words, football, soccer, baseball, and basketball suck. Get over it. Horse racing is way better. If you play baseball, you SERIUOSLY need to get a life. Better yet, ride a horse. - ZenyattaForever

Of course it's the best! Imagine this 100,000 fans watching thousand pound animals run at 40 miles an hour, making big moves and sailing past everyone like they are walking. They run way faster than any of you football players. And I love football I even play it but it isn't as truly awesome as horse racing

OF COURSE it's the best are you kidding me SOCCER?! And FOOTBALL?!
Soccer- pointless
Hockey- pointless (my idea of fun is not whacking people over the head with a stick)
Basketball- absolutely pointless
Baseball -completely pointless
Gymnastics- ok I guess. HBR is better
Cheerleading- awesome!

27 Archery Archery Archery is the sport, practice or skill of using a bow to propel arrows. The word comes from the Latin arcus.

I love archery it should be at the top 25 it is one of the best sports EVER

28 Bowling

I was disgusted to see that cheerleading is higher than bowling on this list. Come on. Bowling is so underrated. In my opinion, it is the ultimate target sport.

One of the hardest sports.

Once you get your first 300 it gets a very tiny bit more boring

Best sport ever

29 Ping Pong

Ping Pong is pretty fun if you get off your butt and try it

I love ping pong and wish I had a ping pong table

Ping Pong deserves to be WAY higher. It's a way better sport than what it's ranked as!

Believe it or not, Ping Pong is the world's 2nd most popular sport, only behind soccer.

30 Skiing

For those who have never gone skiing, go now. Regardless of age, size, shape, gender, you can be a pro and brag to your friends. Competitively, there is nothing else quite like it with ever changing courses and conditions. Every day is awesome whether taking it slow, flying down a double black, or enjoying mounds of powder. I don't know how this lost to something as boring as bowling or NASCAR. It is only this far down because of unpopularity and if it is ranking difficulty, diversity, likeable, or just sheer awesomeness, easily in the top 5.

There's nothing like the feeling of racing down fresh powder with no one around you except your friends and the mountain.

32 Surfing Surfing Surfing is a surface water sport in which the wave rider, referred to as a surfer, rides on the forward or deep face of a moving wave, which is usually carrying the surfer towards the shore.

Surfing is by far one of the chillest things to do

Surfing is good, to chill get a tan and have fun!

33 Fastpitch Softball

Fastpitch softball needs to be number one. It is on my list. I have played for 10 years so I am in love with it. BEST SPORT EVER!

Wonderful! Amazing! Super! This is one of the most entralling sports I have ever had the pleasure to watch. It is much better than baseball because, it doesn't drag, the players are girls, and they don't spit.

I played softball for 4 years and now I miss playing it. I do cross country and track now

Best Sport should be right up there with baseball

35 Indoor Soccer

Coolest sport ever. Anyone with me? Put a thumbs up if you do. If you think it is stupid tell me why cause I don't know why it would be. Love your favorite Hope Solo's sister who is going to be the new her and Abby Wanbach.

I'll tell you why it's stupid. It's completely pointless, I mean soccer INSIDE. I've never heard of such a thing

38 Four Square

We had a foursqure tournament at the community center I work at and I'm telling you it can get pretty competitive! Foursquare needs to be in the Olympics.
